This is normal and expected.  Google Talk uses the XMPP protocol
behind the scenes.

I think there is one other change you'll need to make: on the Advanced
tab set Connect server to talk.l.google.com  You can avoid this step
by having the utah.gov DNS administrator add appropriate DNS SRV
records for XMPP.  See http://www.olark.com/gtalk/check_srv for more
information.
